Jorja Smith recently popped in to record a Spotify Singles session at Metropolis Studios in London.
There, she played a version of her single from earlier in the year, ‘Teenage Fantasy’, a track that she says she wrote when she was 16 that questions a romantic decision. She also tackled a cover version, playing a soulful yet contemplative version of Frank Ocean’s ‘Lost’. She puts herself centre stage for the ‘Channel Orange’ track, with some guitar flourishes around her that just helps to send her version even more stratospheric.
Recently, Jorja also announced that she’d be heading Stateside for a tour of the US from April onwards. As if that wasn’t enough, she also recently bagged the top spot in the BRITs Critics Choice Award, beating off some stiff competition from Mabel and Stefflon Don.
